I grew up through the video nasty era and the old Italian zombie films still hold a special place for me. I quite enjoyed the Resident Evil films (except for the 3rd) but they can't hold a candle to nonsensical fun like Nightmare City or Burial Ground.

Same here, I grew up during the 'nasty' era and still love the Zombie films of that time .
Great films.

Dawn of the Dead is my favourite followed by Zombie Flesh Eaters. For the worst try Zombie Chef from Hell.

I have to go along with Dawn Of The Dead and Zombi 2 as well. I've often thought about buying the Mondo Cane dvds purely out of curiosity. How nasty in terms of animal violence are they Vincenzo?

If I may comment on this, I'd like to say that some MONDO films teature some very nasty animal cruelty, though IMO, MONDO CANE is one of the milder ones.
Addio Africa, Savage Man Savage Beast and Africa Ama are far far worse for animal cruelty.

Both Savage Man, Savage Beast & Africa Addio suffered huge cuts in the 60's and 70's. I suspect the cuts would be reduced now. One Mondo film the BBFC haven't seen is Brutes and Savages which was uncut on pre cert. Can't say I'm a fan of these films.

All the mondo films submitted to the BBFC were passed with cuts, this includes Mondo Cane but strangely a film called Mondo Cane No 1 was banned in 1963. Strange they couldn't have passed it with cuts.

Im not a fan of MONDO either, but saw alot of titles in the 90s.
In one MONDO movie film a crocodile attacked a wounded animal in a shallow river but its alleged the animal in the river was wounded and placed on a teather by the film makers, so it could move but not escape and they could get the footage they wanted.
Rumors of footage of 'wildlife kills' being filmed using techniques similar to this are rife concerning MONDO films.

I was prepared to give Mountain Of The Cannibal God the benefit of the doubt during the snake/monkey scene until the DVD revealed that the monkey was forced in front of it.

Mondo Cane is definitely one of the milder ones. Africa Addio is absolutely vile and totally unwatchable at times. The gorgeous music makes the footage seem even worse. Incidentally Riz Ortolani composed the scores for both and would later score Cannibal Holocaust (and the equally animal-and-Candice Bergen-unfriendly The Hunting Party).

Haven't seen Brutes & Savages but Savage Man, Savage Beast is similarly revolting in parts (though the goat sucking the hippy girl's breasts is just bizarre). I've got Goodbye Uncle Tom but haven't got round to warching it yet. Not an animal snuff movie but not exactly a glowing light on Political Correctness either.
